Weight Loss (6)      Plateau (1)     
Losing weight and achieving your goal weight can be challenging for most people. While weight tends to come off fairly rapidly at first, at some point it seems as though your weight loss just stops. This inability to lose weight is known as a weight loss plateau and it can be frustrating.

Here’s some ways that may help you begin to lose weight again:

• Cut back on carbs – Research has found that low-carb diets help control hunger.

• Increase exercise frequency or intensity – Performing exercise can help offset the drop in metabolic rate that occurs during weight loss.

• Track everything you eat – Tracking your calorie intake can provide accountability and help you determine if you need to make further adjustments in your healthy lifestyle.

• Eat more fiber – Fiber promotes weight loss by slowing the movement of food through your digestive tract, decreasing appetite and reducing the number of calories your body absorbs from food.

• Drink plenty of water – Drinking plenty of water can help boost your metabolic rate and assist with weight loss.

• Get plenty of sleep – To support weight loss and overall health, aim for 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night.

• Eat veggies at every meal – Veggies are loaded with important nutrients, yet low in calories and carbs. Including them at every meal may reverse a weight loss plateau.

Remember, weight loss plateaus can be frustrating for most people. However, they are a normal part of the weight loss process. In fact, nearly everyone experiences this throughout their weight loss journey. Whatever you do, don’t quit. Just make some readjustments and keep moving forward.
